I would like to rig up my stock arms to lay on 22s until SD arms are released, will they work? I know what it takes to lay on 20s with stock arms, has anyone done it before?
werd.. my lowers are 2.25" tall now at their highest point.. And im trimmed at the frame clear back to right in front of the A-arm mount.. and im barely tucking.. The only way i could see you getting it too work was to make your arm hella skinny or put some sort of bend in it. And that doesnt sound like a good idea either way.BlackEsDime said:some people say its possible, i don't see how. Mine lay 20's... but I was pushing it with that. To get the center of the hub 13" off the ground i was trimming like a mad man on the frame. and my lowers are modified... the uppers are pie cut.
Can you pie cut the lowers too? Sort of shape them the way an aftermarket tubular would look and reinforce them on teh sides and botom? I know that'd get the ball joint to rise and give you a little more frame clearance. Or would that screw ya somewhere else?98layinframe said:Yes its possible.
gotchaAVTekk said:pie cut is done to relieve a binding balljoint, so you dont need to do that on the lowers, and it actually wouldnt get you anywhere.
the only easy mod that you can do without hacking up your frame is to cut the lower balljoint right off and step it up 1" or more and gusset the hell out of it, just like a body drop. kinda sketchy tho.
I dont know about that man... unless its just my shitting balljoints, but when my truck lays out the lower joint os flexed out about as far as it can go. I would have to step notch and change the angle of the lower joint too if i wanted to layout on anything bigger then i have right now.AVTekk said:pie cut is done to relieve a binding balljoint, so you dont need to do that on the lowers, and it actually wouldnt get you anywhere.
